70mm St. Chamond Mountain Howitzer

These two pieces are in excellent condition and are BATF registered in the USA. They are fitted with interrupted screw breeches. Although these were produced prior to World War I in France, they were exported to Belgium Colonial Forces operating in Congo, and exported to the Republic of Guatemala. The howitzers exported to Guatemala have a different style of breech than the ones sent to Congo.

I am asking $16,000 for one. I will consider trades contact Ralph Lovett through lovett155@hotmail.com
